When Marr asked if he would agree to David Cameron having his referendum on Europe in 2017 in any further coalition deal, Mr Clegg said: "Before I address anyone else's red lines, I would address mine".

"I personally think that for many many people...ensuring fair tax cuts for low and middle incomes, that we properly support the NHS, that we don't close their local nursery schools and colleges is much more important than some of the other red lines that other parties have chosen".
